Christmas Day 2010

Good afternoon,

Well, another Christmas has come and gone. I hope yours was a happy and enjoyable affair.

Lunch was again at our house with M-i-L Margaret, her D-i-L Libby and two daughters Lani & Jessie, and good friend Tony joining us for a celebration. Unfortunately Dad wasn't well enough to leave his care to participate so I took over some oysters and champagne, together with some more cards and gifts for him. He enjoyed the morning and the rest of his day I am sure.

A seafood entree was followed by turkey, beef and ham roast with vegetables but that was just the start. The 'serious' stuff was to follow. Margaret made a plum pudding, Robin did a tiramisu and a Christmas cake while Libby hand-makes some superb petit fours. The conversation flowed well in between mouthfuls before retiring to the lounge for the gift sharing and opening. As always, I was spoiled with some wonderful presents.

We wound up sometime after 5PM and our visitors got home safely. With Tony helping, dishes etc were quickly cleaned up, and we could put our feet up. I had two leftover prawns and one leaf of cos lettuce for dinner which I almost thought was too much! Happy New Year and I will report again in 12 months with any luck.

Bye for now, BomberBoy
